Leanna Hanson-McCormick is one of many people who enter contests, but never wins.
That all changed for the Silver City resident when Hanson-McCormick was informed by Editor/Owner Bruce Fuhr she had won four tickets to Kokanee Mountain Zipline in The Nelson Daily Facebook contest.
“I was super excited,” Hanson-McCormick, a resident of Trail, told The Nelson Daily.
“I couldn’t believe it. Really, something I really wanted to do . . . and I won . . . I’m shocked.”
What’s better yet, there’s three remaining tickets for her boys, Cody, 18, Jonathan, 15, and Kye, 10.
“They’ve never been on the zipline and all wanted to go so this works out just perfect.”
Kokanee Mountain Zipline, located near Kokanee Creek Provincial Park 15 kilometers north of Nelson, is ready to open up shop on Year two of operations.
Starting from a spot off the mountain road to Gibson Lake and Kokanee Glacier Park, Kokanee Mountain Zipline offers adrenaline-filled tours with spectacular views of surrounding mountain ranges as well as shots of Kootenay Lake — with nearly a mile of total ziplines.
